“Popcorn Cassia”

Fast growing, gorgeous foliage, luscious black buds & showy bright yellow flowers make this native legume of east Africa a valuable garden accent. To 8’ tall, multi-branching with beautiful tropical looking, bright green, pinnate foliage, this unusual Cassia blooms Spring through Fall but most heavily in Summer & Fall. The showy 2” flowers are densely held on branching spikes up to 1’ long & emerge from rich, shiny black buds. Can get rangy, so prune back after flowering to maintain a pleasing shape or can be trained as an interesting vine subject. Foliage has a rich buttered popcorn scent! May have weed potential, so don’t plant near wild areas.
